Here a few ideas that may spike your teens interest in birthday parties again. Video game themed parties are the simplest parties to prepare. They love video games and a themed party based on their favorite game is easily planned. The decorations may be one basic color that represents the game, for example if one were planning a Rock Band party one would use blue. Use blue throughout the room, shape the cake like a guitar, drums, or microphone, and have plenty of food and drinks on hand. Leave them to organize their own fun but be there to restock the food and drinks. Other examples may be Super Mario, Final Fantasy, or any first person role playing game.
